NBA and Coronavirus: What are the options?

The National Basketball Association has, much like any other professional league in the world, been severely hit with the sudden coronavirus outbreak across the planet. The COVID-19 virus has completely stopped sport all over the globe. While it first appeared in China, the virus rapidly spread across entire Europe and the United States. As reported by a UK betting tips site, the situation is currently by no means under control and we certainly won’t have the chance to enjoy the best sports...

SLAPP Suit Filed Against Fox News Over Awful & Dangerous COVID-19 Coverage (techdirt)

Pretty much everyone knew this was coming. Fox News' coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic has been absolutely despicable -- insisting that it was little more than the flu, was overhyped by Trump's political enemies, and nothing anyone should be worried about, before turning on a dime to suddenly pretend they never said any of that earlier, and that suddenly it was always obvious it was serious: Of course, a ton of people not only still remember the earlier messaging, but continue to insist i...

Wrong Candidates for Aid, Wrong Time

Imagine if FDR had offered a multi-million-dollar aid package to Germany before the Nazi surrender on May 7, 1945. Or if Truman had air-dropped food, medicine, and cash on Japanese cities before Emperor Hirohito announced his country’s surrender on August 15, 1945. Such scenarios would have been impossible then, but today, pundits and politicians are advocating sending aid to Iran, a sworn enemy of the U.S., to combat the coronavirus. They are also urging the release of aid for the Palestinians,...

Thursday April, 2, 2020

I was in Boston on 9/11. Unable to fly home to Seattle, I drove my rental car down through Conneticutt onto Northern Manhattan the afternoon of 9/12 or 9/13, I am not sure which. As a New York City native and an American, I had this fealing, being on the East Coast, I should try to help out. I am not sure what I was thinking I could do. With the military stationed along the way into Manhatattan, the growing realization there was nothing I could do and probably a tear in my eye, I headed West ac...

The Great Masking: Designers Collaborate to Fight the Pandemic

Editor’s Note:Over the past two weeks, Covid-19 has descended like a pall over all of our day-to-day realities, shuttering schools, prohibiting movement, and pretty much grinding the economy to a halt.

Russia’s COVID-19 Crackdowns Could Get Real Ugly

MOSCOW—“You should find abandoned cells used to punish prisoners, cold ones with no food in them, lock them up there,” Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov declared as the Russian Federation went into a nationwide lockdown. He was telling his security force commanders how to treat those who disobeyed the curfew and quarantine orders. “Throw them in a big hole, bury them, let them die in it."Most Russian officials are not as blunt and brutal as Kadyrov, a protégé of President Vladimir Putin and the p...

California Among The US States Least Affected By The Opioid Epidemic

Opioids have taken the lives of thousands of Americans. In 2017, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services declared the epidemic a public health emergency. A report issued Tuesday shows how California is being affected by the crisis. Despite the increase in opioid-related death rates nationwide, not all states have felt the impact equally. When comparing the age-adjusted opioid overdose death rate in each state, states in the West have done better than states in the East, especially the Rus...

Good news LGBTQ headlines

March wasn’t an easy month. If the coronavirus didn’t impact you directly, headlines concerning the pandemic surely stirred up anxiety related to the current moment’s uncertainty. On top of the health crisis, outlets and events for the queer community are being closed and canceled at an alarming rate, leaving LGBTQ folks with very little light at what’s looking to be a much longer tunnel than expected. But let’s not dwell on the bad stuff. In 2015, Harvard researcher Shawn Achor, psychologis...

Masks for Coronavirus Will Not Last Long in the West

‘I  am fully aware that masks are alien to our culture. This will require a big adjustment,” said Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz as he explained his government’s new requirement that citizens wear medical masks while shopping in supermarkets. The order is expected to be expanded to more public spaces in Austria soon. And if public health authorities are to be believed, we may expect the same soon in other Western countries. Reopening business may require adopting the same culture of welcomin...

Parisian of the Month: Cori Coppola

I am excited to have my new friend, Cori Coppola as my Parisian of the Month.   Where were you born and where did you grow up? I was born in Hollywood in a little bungalow apartment. It wasn’t a great neighborhood, but it was one of those leftover bungalow areas that had originally been built for the larger studios. It was a two-bedroom with one bathroom, and I could go outside and play under the huge palm trees. Then we moved to Hancock Park which I loved, and I could bike or walk ...

Diabolical division: NFC West looks loaded for another year

The NFC West was a diabolically difficult division for most of the past decade, and it only seems to be getting tougher. The NFL's winningest division last season will be stacked again in the fall with four franchises determined to win now. Three teams that posted winning records in 2019 will be joined by what looks like a much-improved version of the Arizona Cardinals, who are among the biggest winners of the early free-agent signing period after adding star receiver DeAndre Hopkins to a...
